Description

In this lesson from ReadWriteThink, students combine reading with descriptive writing. Students read "The Giver" by Lois Lowry, as well as short biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs in order to understand the differences between them. Students then gather information through interviews and write their own memoirs.
